Yeah so by the time I post this some of you might be in deep slumber but for those patriotics owls like me a not-so patriotic post for you :)
This post was seen coming long back and we are extremely sorry about the same. Now we all know about Crabtree and Evelyn opening up their first store in Delhi but when it happened in Mumbai Honestly I had no clue about it. There are not one but three outlets in Mumbai itself. We weren't giving it a second thought to visit the 2-month old baby at Infinity Mall-2 in Malad. (We had our own share of traveling woes not to mention but boy when I don’t make it on time to events I realise I'm leaving on the other side).
Getting back to the event, Vellvette in collaboration with Crabtree and Evelyn organized this soiree to get tête-à-tête and to celebrate the launch of their new line “Gardeners Range”.
We were welcomed warmly by lovely Vineeta from Vellvette.I was absolutely amazed at how well she knew each of her early members. Time and again I have spoken to Jehan,Harlin ,Vineeta and Kaushik needlessly to say they are so much lovelier in person. Honestly this is the most personalized service I could ever bought for that budget.
The range available at Infinity Malad store :
We were briefed about the lovely brand representative - The inspiration, how the brand got its name and the collections available. The team also helped us find our signature scents. Most of us were naturally inclined towards India Hicks Island and a hot favourite with the ladies was “The nomad Range “for Men.
About the Gardeners Range [soothing herbs from the English garden]:

Think of the way sorbets are used to cleanse the palate between courses in a dinner. Sigh ! only if were offer a delicious cappuccino every time we tried perfumes instaed of smelling the coffee beans.(I have had my share of embarrassing moments where ate them when I was offered for smelling them! C'mon now don't judge me I was naive )
Some lovely Vanities in Evelyn rose and Lavender.
Not to forget the lovely hand spa session that we were given. Sheer Bliss I say!
I opted for the Citron ,Honey and coriander spa .
Ending the event with lovely notes and wishes.
Also how can I forget the lovely goodybag :)
The personalized goody bags.I got a sample travel size tube of hand treatment from the La source range along with chocolates,a iris scented candle ,nail blings and anklet.But boy I lost the nail bling already ,even before clicking the pictures :/ Did you guys know how obsessed with looking at my name on stuff..yes I want everything custom made bitch :D
I know this has been a lot to take in I really tried to sum things up in short and there could be an error or two but grammar Nazis spare me this post J I want to keep writing about it .Ahhh I’m kinda just dreamy-eyed about it even as I write the post.
I really hope you like my first post ,I finally covered an event.
p.s. All the views are my own I was not sponsored to write anything about the brand.
See you soon in my next post Munchkins till then
